Wonderful flavor. The recipe says to use a non-stick cooking spray. That's what I did and had no sticking problems.

Great fries but fries tend to stick to pan so I'll try the suggestion made to use foil next time.

These were great! i did need a little more olive oil, and I recommend either oiling the baking sheet or using oiled tin foil -- the fries tended to stick.

A great recipe. You may need a little more oil depending upon the size of the potatoes. I tossed them in a bowl-no bags. I would use a larger pan for more surface area too. The ones touching the pan were "Yummy Crispy"!

Just made these for the first time. Perfect! I wish I had used a bigger pan to increase the surface area but in the end these were great with my family's burger night. Much healthier than other sides.

My family thought these were GREAT!!! We eat potatoes frequently and this made them taste different than just a normal baked potatoe!!!!

Any leftovers you have, cut up & cook in pan the next day (with small amount of oil/marg) for some awesome homefries! :)
